The subtitle of this post should be “disappointment.”
Yup, that would be my basket, all my projects pulled off needles and reballed. Mistakes were made and I do not have the brain power to attempting fixing them right now. I’m better off starting again. At a later date. So for now I’m going to cast on some simple, hopefully easy baby knits.
I’m thinking some booties and hats to go with the BSJs. I also realize I’m slightly insane making handknits for a July baby. It is beastly hot and I’m thinking hats??? Well, yes. Perhaps largely because I think I can finish a couple hats in a couple days and get back to feeling some sense of accomplishment. (No, that pink and purple is not significant. I love the yarn and had needed a break for the usual blues I tend toward. I figured as long as I’ve hung onto it this long I might as well get it some buttons, make it some accessories, and wait and see. There’s a 50/50 chance of this babe getting to wear it. Well, maybe less than 50/50, it’s rather tiny so we’ll have to see if the wee one is really wee enough for it.)
So there’s my plan for the day. Sit in my chair with a fan pointed at me, cast on some baby things, read some Sherlock Holmes, maybe if I’m feeling really ambitious (and the boys are miraculously asleep or out of the apartment) I’ll quickly piece together a new curtain for the kitchen window to block to hot evening sun. Oh, and of course check out the other Yarn Along posts at small things. It’s a nice plan.
